Saison 75

To celebrate our 75th anniversary in 2014 Chef Marc Dym teamed up with Fal Allen, Master Brewer at the Anderson Valley Brewing Company. Together they crafted a unique, food-friendly, everyday-sipping Saison-style ale – our legendary Saison 75. Light and refreshing, with a hint of candycap mushroom, a pint of this brew is a ‘must try’ if you’re a beer lover.

A Storied History

It all started at Little River Inn when Ole asked his mother-in-law to turn her living room into a bar. Back in 1939 the bar was also the office, where he conducted business while bartending, smoking stogies and telling tall tales. Change was made from his cigar box, and the one key that worked in every lock was given to the occasional city slicker who insisted on locking their door at night. A 1939 photo of the bar reveals the exact same ocean view room so popular today as Ole’s Whale Watch Bar.
